Hello there! You may be here reading this article because you're thinking about switching to a natural deodorant. Congrats! But before you make the switch, here are 3 things you need to know.
You're gonna sweat!
Yes, you will and it's a good thing. Unlike the commercial deodorant or antiperspirant in the market, natural deodorants do not contain aluminium in the formula that are widely used to control sweating from the sweat glands in the skin (aluminium has been associated to breast cancer - though there's little evidence proving that). It's important to remember that sweating is an essential bodily function.
You may smell funky after switching to natural deodorant
According to skincare experts, you have to let your armpit detox from the toxic first. If you've been using antiperspirants or commercial deodorants in the market, you have to go through a "deodorant detox". It's normal if you smell funky after an immediate switch to natural deodorant. It can take up to 30 days for your body to regulate itself again and sweat naturally. Don't freak out, some people only take a day or two.
It takes a little trial and error to find out what works for you
If you have experienced using natural deodorant before and it doesn't work for your pit, that's just one of many other natural deodorants in the market. From sprays to sticks, creams and powder, it really takes time to find out what works for your body. It may take some time but your journey is worth it.
